Timberline Lodge at 80 – A Snapshot of History
This brief pictorial reflection will include images by several northwest photographers whose pictures helped make Timberline Lodge and Mt. Hood the cultural icon that it is today and will show several photographs that may not have been previously published.
Sarah Baker Munro has been involved with Timberline since 1975 when the Friends of Timberline was organized. As an active member of Friends of Timberline, she worked with Rachael Griffin on a catalog of construction and furnishing of the lodge and collaborated with the Forest Service on the first detailed inventory of art and furnishings since 1938. In 2009, Munro published Timberline Lodge: The History, Art, and Craft of an American Icon through Timber Press. In 2016, Munro produced Timberline Lodge, published by Arcadia Publishing in its Images of America series. Munro has also curated exhibits relating to Timberline and New Deal art in Oregon and participated in a symposium on Oregon’s New Deal. She currently serves as the director of the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum, boyhood home of Herbert Hoover, in Newberg.

Get Ready for “Warren Miller Wednesdays”
Various dates and Locations
For almost 70 years Warren Miller Entertainment has produced the world’s most renowned feature-length ski and snowboard films. Mr. Miller has had multi decade personal relationship with Timberline Lodge and Friends of Timberline including being our guest speaker at a past Annual Meeting Dinner.
As part of our yearlong acknowledgement of Timberline’s 80th year, FOT is excited to partner with the WME to present “Warren Miller Wednesdays” in late September and early October. This is a fundraiser for FOT and the concept is simple: gather with fellow outdoor enthusiasts on a series of Wednesday nights to share a few laughs and relive a few Timberline stories over food and drink while watching one of the “best of” WME’s most popular films from the past. Pretty easy way to support FOT’s work at Timberline.
Dates and locations in the Portland area are still being finalized, but will be posted on our website and Facebook page when completed. If you want the information sent directly to you, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject Warren Miller.
We hope you will “save” a Wednesday or two and make plans to meet friends for a fun evening and help Friends of Timberline at the same time.
